I grabbed both this and amnesia for the pre-order discount and am waiting for night to fall to have a go. Will report back later. Nothing scares me though - ever - so I highly doubt I'll be scared but I'll try to give an accurate account of it for you dudes.
Honestly, I just want a damn occulous rift to play these games with so badly... So badly!
I've never trusted anything that has ever come out of IGN so for the people in my boat there is this great bit of news:
"Outlast is not an experiment in how games can be scary, it’s an exemplification.
The team that made this game understood survival horror. Outlast takes the ideas of predecessors and runs them through an incredibly talented set of individuals to produce a slick, brilliant experience. Its claim of “scariest game ever” will likely put it under some fire, particularly from connoisseurs of the genre, and especially with Machine For Pigs turning up at a similar time. But what it can definitely claim to be is a great game. It’s not a simple excuse for gore and violence, nor is it only interested in shocking you with a sudden scream and blood splattered visage. It wants to horrify. It’ll also intrigue, terrify and surprise you in equal measure." - Ben Barrett from RPSSource
I can't wait until the sun goes down so I can have a go at this!Edited by Exostenza - 9/4/13 at 3:54pm
